Christendom Alumni Support Vocations to Priesthood, Religious Life

LibraryChristendom College alumni are collaborating with a Front Royal, Va.-based Knights of Columbus council to host the first annual "Vocations Fundraising Dinner" to raise financial support for local men and women currently pursuing vocations to the priesthood and religious life, the college reported.

The first event is scheduled for January 4, 2014, and will take place at Christendom.  Alumni Nathan Scott ('10) and Michael Bugin ('12) are organizing the dinner at which Christendom president Dr. Timothy O'Donnell will be the guest speaker.

Of the eleven vocations that stand to benefit from the dinner, nine are Christendom College alumni.  The almuni are in formation with the Benedictines, Carmelites, Community of St. John, Arlington Diocese, and Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter.

Christendom reports that it has helped foster 148 religious vocations among its alumni.  The count so far is 68 priests, 50 sisters, 1 deacon, 2 brothers, and 27 current seminarians.

Christendom College is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
